First post here, long time lurker.
I’m just getting into wood working, and taking the advise of everyone here I am trying to buy the 2nd saw now.
I think I’ve got it narrowed down to the two saws that I’d like to focus on. I’ve read the multitude of reviews on the 0715P.
1. Price (pretty standard, doesn’t appear to go on sale and I actually like that), $859 to the door.
1. Internet Order, I am struggling with ordering my first major saw from an online retailer without getting my hands on it first.
I darn near pressed the order button today, but needed some thoughts first. I even had their 7944 drill press included in the order, but I think I have removed that and might go with the Ridgid DP1550 instead due to price and good reviews.

Thanks so much, I’ve spent probably 3-4 weeks on craigslist looking for saws (everyone wants too much for their crappy craftsman), while I worked on my wife ever so slowly to allow me to buy one of these, lol. (she finally gave in!) Just need a bit of expertise from the long time folks here, who can help me make my decision.
